This is a weekly event which is not very well advertised, but once your learn it on it well worth a visit each week (if you in Palm Springs for longer than 7 days. Lots and lots of side stalls with art, crafts, paintings, glass modelling, all kinds of food, street performers and much much more.

Thursday night street fair in Palm Springs. This was a great way to talk to local merchants and vendors and experience downtown Palm Springs. Shopping, food, music, lots of fun!

Every Thursday evening, the street is opened up to merchants and local vendors to offer their goods for sale. It is a very festive atmosphere with lots of unique gifts. Don't miss it!
